Day of Goodwill History
Day of Goodwill serves as a day to recover from the indulgence of Christmas festivities and indulge in the South African summer sunshine. Until 1994, the day was known as Boxing Day, but was renamed to Day of Goodwill in order to sever ties with South Africa's colonial past. Originally, as Boxing Day, it was the British holiday of gifting boxes on the day after Christmas however with the change of name, the day is now simply a day off for the South African people.
Day of Goodwill is celebrated annually on 26 December, the day after Christmas. The day is often spent outdoors in the summer sunshine with family and friends.
